Description
Apt. 9D finds connections between New York and Puerto Rico through the apartment interior. Showing how the home maintains cultural traditions of any diaspora, the works utilize iconography of the Nuyorican community in collaboration with Borinquen themes. Additionally, the symbol of water flows through the works as both an indication of the sea that connects NYC to PR, and a reminder of the hurricane that devastated the island still suffering from the disaster. Using mixed media techniques and interactive approaches, the installation extends the personal home with its viewers and reminds us warmly of home, as well as the kinship with those on the island.
